a few of the things that I'm working on and looking at...



I took this photo yesterday when the sun was shining. Today we have rain! Coincidentally, today I'm working with an entirely different palette, pale blue gray.

The shocking pink socks are my first pair of toe up socks.
I'm embracing the pool of this yarn but have to say I'm in no hurry to work a knit 2 purl 2 sock in the near future! Except of course for the mate. Darn, the mate!
Other objects in the photo are a magic treasures bag that I'm hoping my little students will make, garter stitch and felted coasters, a birthday invitation, and some vibrant yarns.
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate the holiday.

Oooh! I want to be in that class! I love the little bag with the swirl on it. I want it!!! How did you make it?! So cute, Kat!

I find, the only cure for second sock syndrome is to start the second sock immediately after finishing the first. I'm almost done with the first, but am losing interest in all that ribbing on tiny needles.
I do want to finish, though, because the colors remind me of Good 'n' Plenty candy.

The magic treasures bag is made with felted garter strip squares sewn together, and the decoration is a coiled I-cord stitched with sequins and an old button.

i am so not a fan of ribbing and to top it off mine is too loosey goosey and sloppy. love those little bags. you always give me such great ideas! coasters...hmmm

Oh, I love the idea of tiny totes filled with magical mysteries! I hope your students are enthusiastic treasure hunters. :)

Darn, that second sock and good luck with it!

Michele said...
